I have been talking to Vance Hallock, Don's son.
Don had acquired a collection of over 300 mags, Vance has been selling luger magazines from the collection on ebay and he thought there might be folks interested in talking to him direct.
I have bought some Simson magazines, but there are a few of...
Hello guys, i am looking to buy this Luger from a guy. He says that this is a swiss Luger made in Germany? This pistol has never been shot and i want to ask if this pistol is valuable? The seller says this is a 9mm, but i know that swiss Lugers often use .30 luger ammo, so is 9mm rare?
I'm curious about what is known as the C96 French Gendarmerie model
I know that there was a small contract of approximately 2000 guns.
Is there a serial number range for the contract?
Also were they all fitted with 50-100m Tangent sights?
Were there any models known to be fitted with...
Looking for info on good Mauser books, for reference.
Mostly on the C96, but I'm also interested in other Mauser pistols
I'm currently looking into these books:
Mauser Pocket Pistols 1910-1946 Roy G Pender III
System Mauser History of the Model 1896 Self Loading Pistol by Breathed & Schroeder...
My first Luger. 1940 dated Mauser Banner police contract that was accepted by the Army. E/655 proofed, drilled for sear safety but never installed. This gun is pictured on pg 772 of The Borchardt & Luger Automatic Pistols. Special thanks to Luger_collector for the spare armorer replacement...
If anyone has this book, I had a huge request please. On page 772 luger 1098x is supposed to be featured. I sadly don't have this set yet, so was hoping someone who did would be able to confirm or deny it for me. Thanks!
I recently bought a 1942 Commercial Mauser HSc, (SN 803915, Peak Production). I posted info about it on the Mauser HSc DATA thread (Post 375) a couple of weeks ago, so the SN and markings could be added to the database. I posted pictures as well. This thread had not seem any activity since...
I recently bought this gun and am wondering if I got a good/reasonable deal on it.
I saw other all matching "nazi" Lugers on GunBroker sell for $2500+.
The magazine possibly does not match, how much would that effect its price?
First-time poster... I'm writing with a mystery.
I'm trying to help a friend track down a Mauser Luger and holster that his grandfather brought back from WWII, and which he sadly pawned when he was in a hard spot back in 2011. His grandfather took it from a German officer who...
I ran across this strange marking on a Mauser 1914 Post WWI (4th Variant?). Does anyone have a clue of what this sideways "7" means. There are no other unusual external markings or unusual proofs on the pistol except the one seen normally. Thank you friends!
